Auction Watch #96


1st Auction
Translucent Bootlegs?

Currently, there aren’t too many exciting auctions on eBay. Thankfully there are two interesting auctions – plus two custom M.U.S.C.L.E. items that collectors need!

The first auction, Vintage Mattel M.U.S.C.L.E. lot of 30 pink flesh, is a lot of 30 Flesh figures. However, the interesting part is the translucent figures. The seller states the belief that the translucent figures are bootlegs. It’s possible, but somewhat unlikely, that these are some type of Exogini. If they are bootleg figures, then they are very unique bootlegs.

These five translucent figures will not attract a wide audience, but likely an enthusiastic set of counterfeit M.U.S.C.L.E. collectors. Of course, the exciting and unique counterfeit auctions rarely include a high price tag. This lot’s price will likely be set by the 30 Flesh figures.

The price of the first auction will be $15.

2nd Auction
Board Game Figure Set

The second auction, M.U.S.C.L.E Men Figures Lot – Board Game Figures, is a set of BOARD GAME figures. Novice collectors often believe these figures are far more valuable than other figures. That is untrue.

Board game figures are incredibly accessible and often included in many lots of colored figures. When they are sold separately a premium price is usually attached – and usually sold to novice collectors. The sets sometimes sell for more than complete games.

This auction will be interesting to watch. Will the figures sell for a silly price or the actual value?

The price of the second auction will be $13.50.


Neither of the two-featured auctions are likely to fuel the excitement and passion of most M.U.S.C.L.E. collectors. However, there are two custom projects that certainly do that. Both of these can be ordered by click on the pictures below.
